Step 1:  Students must meet with the Department Head of their desired department to discuss academic goals and ideas regarding a potential research area.  The Department Head will refer the student to selected faculty members to review lab options and choose a faculty sponsor willing to provide necessary oversight of the student in the lab and a graduate student mentor.  (The graduate student is selected by the faculty sponsor, not the undergraduate student.)  The research project and schedule is determined between the student and faculty sponsor. 

Step 2:  After a faculty sponsor, research lab, and graduate mentor have been determined, the student must complete the NRS application, essay, and résumé.  The faculty sponsor must complete the faculty sponsor form.  The student must also arrange for a separate letter of recommendation from an OSU faculty member who is familiar with the student.  The applicant must submit a complete application packet to the Office of the Vice President for Research by the deadline.
